Embedded digital compass that integrates with GPS satellite navigation introduced by OceanServer
FALL RIVER, Mass., 29 June 2011. OceanServer Technology Inc. in Fall River, Mass., is introducing a line of compact and accurate 3-axis positioning sensors for aerospace and defense applications such as antennas, night vision systems, robotics, satellites, sonar, solar panels, and weather instrumentation. The electronic compass devices come in either a 0.6-inch version for embedded applications, or a 1-square-inch full-board size. The full-board version automatically detects either USB or RS232 connections and a TTL interface. Systems designers may integrate these navigation and guidance devices with global positioning system (GPS) satellite navigation to provide heading information.
The devices offer 3-Axis magnetic sensors with 3-Axis accelerometers as standard equipment. Other standard features include hard- and soft-iron calibration, a processor running at 50 MIPS that supports IEEE floating point math, a 24-bit A/D converter, and programmable data rates ranging from 4.8 to 115 megabits per second. OceanServer also offers Windows software for testing and evaluation.
